Want to get away from it all, but don’t want to leave the city? You can always have a staycation during the weekends!
Staycation, a portmanteau of “stay” and “vacation” is a fancy term for spending your time off at home or other places where you can stay for the night. One of the things you can do during staycation is staying at a hotel room where you can enjoy the luxury of being away from your stressful schedules and responsibilities for a while.
Jakarta, with its concrete jungle, polluted air, and the crazy traffic could be stressful for some people. Thankfully, getting away from this city doesn’t mean that you have to book a flight to another city or even abroad. Jakarta is enough if you want to have a short staycation within your busy schedules.
